Default Beginners Guide To Auto TDC Using 3 Circles

Last updated 8th October 2017
Beginners Guide To Auto TDC Using 3 Circles
We all had to start somewhere.
So where better than with my Tutorial that even without your game playing will give you the feel of what is trying to be achieved and the flavor of things to come.

Do you jump in at the deep end and hope for the best or do you start at the bottom and learn as you go along.
Is this ‘Tutorial’ based on Skill no?

It is about joining up ‘Circles’ and getting in to the right ‘Firing Position.’

You will probably find it easier to sink a ship than climb the ladders at this stage of your Career.

Is there however a better way than matching 3 Circles that is easy to understand?
The answer is yes and can be found in this Tutorial Post #146.
Post #146 Auto TDC Targeting Without Using 3 Circles > Updated Pictorial

The reason is Auto TDC using the 3 Circles method in theory limits the range to matching up both your U-boat and the Target to Circle 3.
As you will see in Tutorial Post# 146 it still works even with 3 Circles.

Auto TDC With 3 Circles Tutorial.

1. Simple Auto TDC is about matching ‘1 pair of Circles’ from a possible ‘3 Pairs of Circles’.
2. Is it that easy, Yes?
3. You can see a ‘Target’ on the map.
4. ‘Pause the Game’’
5. Put the ‘Mouse’ over the ‘Target’ and scroll the ‘Mouse’ so you can see the ‘Ships Outlined Shape.’
6. With the ‘Marker’ put an ‘X’ on both ends of the ‘Target.’
7. Make sure you ‘Scroll Out’ to gain as much accuracy as you can.
8. Use a little ‘Time Compression’ so that your ‘Target’ moves a short distance.
9. ‘Pause Game’ again.
10. ‘Using the ‘Marker’ again place another two ‘Xs’ as before.
11. Take the ‘Ruler’ and draw a line through all the ‘Xs’ and past the ‘U-Boat.’
12. Take the ‘Protractor and on the ‘Targets Heading Line’ mark out where you want to put the ‘90 degrees’ ‘Intercept Line’ to be.
13. Take the ‘Ruler’ and measure back from the ‘Firing Point Line’ that you made with the ‘Protractor’ ‘800 meters.’
14. Move the U-Boat to the ‘800 Meters Mark.’
15. ‘All Stop.’
16. Make sure when you move the U-Boat it is outside of the ‘Targets Circle of View’ or it will start to take evasive action and the opportunity may be lost.
17. Go to ‘Periscope Depth.’
18. Raise the ‘Attack Scope.’
19. The ‘TAI Map’ will show a ‘Torpedo Line’ with ‘3 Numbered Circles 1-2-3’ passing through it coming from the ‘U-Boat.’
20. This shows where the ‘Torpedo’ will be at any given time depending on the ‘Torpedo Speed.’
21. When you move the ‘Periscope’ and look at the ‘TAI Map’ you will see that the ‘Torpedo Line’ is changing position to match the ‘Periscopes Bearing.’
22. If you want to enlarge the ‘TAI Map’ put your mouse on the ‘Map Edge’ and then drag it out.
23. Move the ‘Periscope’ on to the ‘Target’ and press the ‘Space Bar’ to ‘Lock Target.’
24. Make sure that you ‘DO NOT’ turn on the ‘TDC’ if the ‘XO’ offers it.
25. The ‘Target’ also has ‘3 Circles’ and showing a ‘Heading Line’ of its own.
26. The ‘Mouse Scroll Wheel’ will change the ‘Periscope Magnification’ from 1.5 to 6.
27. You will notice that there is a ‘Colored Triangle’ to the side of the ‘Periscope Line.’ (Stock Game)
28. ‘Red – Yellow – Green’ are the colors that are used.
(Stock Game)
29. Look at the Targets Heading Line’ is it still on the line that was drawn earlier?
30. If it is not then take the ‘Eraser’ and ‘Remove’ the line.
31. Take the ‘Ruler’ and draw a new line as you did before.
32. Does your ‘Number 3 Circle’ cross the line that you drew?
33. Do you need to move the U-Boat ‘Ahead Slow’ or ‘Back Slow’ to get the right ‘Firing Position?’
34. The ‘Primary’ object is to match the ‘Targets Circles’ with the ‘U-Boats Circles.’
35. How you ‘Position’ the U-Boat’ will determine which of the ‘Circe Numbers’ to use.
36. Holding the ‘Right Mouse button Down’ move the ‘Mouse’ to show a ‘0’ bearing on the ‘Periscope.’.
37. Set up the ‘Torpedo Speeds’
38. The ‘Fast Torpedo Speed’ extends the ‘Torpedo Line’ and ‘Slow Speed’ shortens it.
39. Move the U-Boat so that if possible the ‘Number 2 Circle’ cuts through the line.
40. This can be done by either using ‘Ahead Slow or Back Slow.’
41. You can still hit the ‘Target’ using the following combinations.
42. Target showing ‘Number 3’ <> ‘U-Boat’ between 3 and 2.
43. Target showing ‘Number 2’ <> ‘U-Boat’ between 2 and 1.
44. Target showing ‘Number 1’ <> ‘U-Boat’ between 1
45. Use the ‘TAI Map’ regularly to view the U-Boats Position’ and ‘Distance’ to the closing ‘Target.’
46. You should be seeing a ‘Green Triangle’ showing on the Periscope Line’ indicating a good ‘Firing Position.’
47. The ‘TAI Map’ will ‘Magnify’ the area by scrolling the mouse.
48. This will help to line up the ‘Circles,’
49. You can also ‘Reposition’ by ‘Dragging’ with the mouse.
50. Move your ‘Periscope’ so that the ‘U-Boats Torpedo Line’ engages the ‘Targets Line.’
51. Allow the ‘Targets Circle’ to come to yours.
52. You can ‘Fire’ ‘On the Circle’s coming together.’
53. You can ‘Fire’ ‘Slightly Before the Circles are on top of each other.’
54. ‘Fire After’ and it’s a ‘Miss.’
55. You will then see if any adjustments need to be made.
56. Moving the ‘Periscope’ to the left or right might line up the ‘Circles’ at a sharper angle.
57. Do you ‘Fire’ or wait a bit longer for that closer ‘90 degree Shot’ you lined up for.
58. The decision is yours ‘Captain.’

Good Hunting Peter

Default Why You Should Be Making Manual Saves

Last updated 3rd November 2015

Silent Hunter 5 has 2 automated saves.
Autosave Enter Base (AEB)
Autosave In Game (AIG)

The AEB save is created when you first start a new career and when you end a patrol.
The AIG save is an automated save that is created every 25 minutes in the game.
Neither of these saves should be used to start or continue a mission/patrol.

When you end a patrol you are placed in the bunker ready to start another mission or patrol.
At this point you should use the Esc key and then Save Game to enter a manual save reference of your choice.

When the AEB save is loaded to enter the Bunker a Manual save should be made by using the Esc key and then Save Game to enter a manual save reference of your choice.
This manual save is then used to start your mission.

The AIG saves will continue to be made while your game is running by overwriting each other.
When you decide to make a manual save these AIG saves will disappear having been overwritten by your Manual save.

These Manual save practices help to keep your game stable unlike the automated ones that can become corrupted and should not be trusted.

If you are covering a long distance it is a good idea to break the journey by making a Manual save and then using Resume.

If you are in the Baltic and heading for Kiel then make a Manual save 200km from Kiel and then exit the game back to the desktop.
By doing this you will reduce the chance of a CTD due to the amount of data that had been collected before the Manual save and now of course as you near Kiel you will pick up a lot of traffic that is going to reduce your frame rate to a much lower level.

Do not make a save prior to attacking.
Manual saves should not be made within 60km of any coast line, attacker, or destroyed marks.

Manual saves should not be made when submerged unless it is unavoidable.
The periscope should be raised to view before making the Manual save.

Default Lost Your Bearings? > This Might Just Put You Right

Last updated 8th October 2017
Lost Your Bearings? > This Might Just Put You Right
There are ‘3 Bearing Types.’
1. True
2. Hydro
3. Scope

4. A ‘True Bearing’ (Inner Compass) always faces ‘N’ (North) ‘0’ or ‘360’ degrees
5. This type of Bearing is used for ‘Map Work’ and ‘Setting Headings’

6. The ‘Hydro’ and ‘Scope Bearing’ (Outer Compass) will ‘Start’ at ‘0’ and ‘End’ at ‘360’ degrees at the ‘U-Boats Bow.’
7. Any Bearing information that you receive from your ‘Crew’ will be this type.
8. The ‘Radio Man’ will give both ‘True’ and ‘Scope Bearings.’
9. The ‘Navigator’ will give ‘True Bearings’
10. The ‘U-Boats Bow’ (Inner Compass) is showing ‘90 degrees’ ‘East’ and ‘0 degrees’ ‘N’ ‘True North.’
11. If we are heading ‘90 degrees ‘East’ ‘True’ (Inner Compass) and receive information from the ‘Sonar Man’ saying there is a ‘Contact’ at ‘350 degrees’ (Outer Compass) we must convert this to a ‘True Bearing’ before it can be plotted on our ‘Navigation Map.’
12. The Scope and Hydro Bearing (Outer Compass) is showing ‘0’ degrees ‘East’ at the ‘U-Boats Bow.’
13. To ‘Convert’ to a ‘True Bearing’ we must add the ‘U-Boats Bearing’ ’90 degrees’ plus the ‘350 degrees Contacts Bearing.’
14. If the ‘Total’ passes ‘360 degrees’ we start again from ‘0’
15. The ‘Calculation’ is ‘350 + 90 = 440 – 360 = 80 degrees.’
16. The (Outer Compass) will show ‘350 degrees.’
17. The (Inner Compass) will show ’80 degrees’ ‘True Bearing.’

Why do you say never give the Torpedo Man any bonus points?

Hi bandit

If you have a look at the points that the Torpedo Man can be awarded he is able to make changes as to how the Torpedoes will then react in the game.

This means that when you set up a firing position you cannot take into account these changes that the Torpedo Man has made.

In other words it creates a firing corruption and you suddenly wonder why your Torpedoes are starting to miss even though all your calculations are correct.

Default Career History CFG File Why You Need To Make A Copy Of It

Last updated 15th March 2017

This has been removed from the TWOS installation and is no longer necessary.

When a New Career is started for the first time you are automatically taken to the Stock Tutorial so The Career History File can be created.

It is not necessary to complete the Stock Tutorial as this can be changed manually unless you wish to gain some experience of using SH5 maybe for the first time.
If the Tutorial is completed then the Career History File will then automatically show 'true' and has been completed.
If the Tutorial is exited the Career History file will be created but the Tutorial will show as 'false' not completed.
Simply changing 'false to 'true' and then saving the file completes the setup.

If an uninstall has been done without the Saved Games SH5 folder being kept then the Silent Hunter 5 Tutorial would normally have to be done again.
Saving the Career History CFG File by Copying and Pasting it to a safe place will help you at any future time should you need to reinstall Silent Hunter 5.
The Career History File is removed along with all the other files when a full uninstall is selected.

Once Silent Hunter 5 has been reinstalled it is just a case of Copying and Pasting the Career History CFG File back to its original position.

The Career History File can be found in the following path:
Document Folder
SH5 Folder
Data Folder
CFG Folder

The Picture shows the Path and the Career History CFG File's position.

Ok, thanks THEBERBSTER I didn't know that. Does it also effect you if you use automatic TDC ?

Yes, Leave him well alone.

Any Bonus points will corrupt your firing solution.

You will be wondering why you keep missing the target.

If the 'Deck Gun' is fired by the 'Crew' then it is beneficial to give them the points as they will become more accurate and load quicker.

If you always fire the gun then the points are wasted so giving at least some of them to your Sonar Man will have benefits.

Default Using The 4 Bearing True Method By Trevally

Last updated 31st December 2014

4 Bearing True Method Tutorial > Step By Step Instructions

It is recommended that you use this ‘Documented Tutorial’ in conjunction with the ‘First Part’ of the mod ‘Trevally Tutorial – All v0.2 (for OHII v1.3)’

This can be found by selecting ‘Tutorials’ and then ‘4 Bearings’ from the ‘Main SH5 menu.’

Select ‘Historical Missions’

‘4 Bearing Tutorial.’

Select ‘Start’ and the Tutorial’ will then load.

This ‘Tutorial Document’ has been edited so you can use it in your game play.

It is assumed that you know how to use the map tools.

Replace the ‘Data’ you see here with your own.

1. This Tutorial is based on the first part of Trevally’s Tutorial where the 15 minute ‘Bearing Times’ have been used.

2. U-Boat speed >‘0’ Knots.

3. U-Boat > ‘Compass Bearing’ > 90 degrees.

4. U-Boat > ‘Depth’ > 25 Meters.

5. ‘Hydrophone Contact Bearing’ > 270 degrees.

6. Start > ‘Stopwatch.’

7. Time starting at ‘0 minutes for True Bearing 2.’

8. ‘Stopwatch Time’ >‘Each Bearing’ > 15 minutes.

9. ‘Plot’ > Bearing 1.

10. Convert > ‘True Bearing’ ’90 + 270 = 360 or 0’

11. Draw Bearing 1 from > ‘Navigation Fix.’

12. North > 0 degrees’

13. ‘Zoom out for accuracy.’

14. You can ‘Plot’ with ‘Game Pause’ on.

15. ‘Un-Pause Game’ to make any adjustments.

16. Draw out > ‘50km.’

17. Start ‘Stopwatch’ time > Each Bearing.

18. Trevally’ is using ‘15 minutes’ for this first example.

19. TIP >‘Compass’ place on top of the ‘Bearing 1 Line’ towards the top and draw it out towards the ‘Navigation Fix.’ ‘Zoom out for accuracy.’

20. ‘15 minutes’ later.

21. ‘Contacts > True Bearing 2’ > 56 degrees.

22. ‘Stopwatch’ started 2nd time for ‘Bearing 3.’

23. Total time ‘15 minutes.’ (True Bearing 2 > 56 degrees)

24. ‘Plot Bearing 2

25. ‘Navigation Fix’ > 56 degrees.

26. Draw out > 50km.

27. ‘Zoom out for accuracy.’

28. Take note the way ‘Contact’ is heading.

29. Bearing 2’ is ‘East of ‘Bearing 1’

30. ‘Zoom out for accuracy’

31. ‘Target’ moving > West to East.

32. ’15 minutes’ later > Bearing 3.

33. ‘Stopwatch’ started 3rd time for the ‘Predicted Bearing 4.’

34. Total time ‘30 minutes.’ (True Bearing 3 > 61 degrees)

35. As soon as we get ‘Bearing 3’ we must ‘Move the U-boat’ before we can take the ‘4th True Bearing.’

36. ‘Surface’ > U-Boat.

37. ‘Ahead Standard.’

38. Plot course ‘Towards’ and to the ‘Side’ of the last ‘Contacts Position.’

39. Bearing 61 degrees’ from > Navigation Fix.

40. Draw out ‘50km.’

41. ‘Zoom out for accuracy.’

42. To get > Contacts Heading.

43. Pick a point over half way up on the ‘Bearing 2 Line’ > ‘Mark’ with an ‘X.’

44. ‘Compass’ > on top of the ‘Bearing 3 Line’ towards the end and draw it out towards > ‘Navigation Fix.’

45. ‘Zoom out for accuracy.’

46. Take both ‘Compasses’ and place ‘Parallel Across’ the ‘X Mark’ you made on the ‘Bearing 2 Line.’

47. ‘Zoom out for accuracy.’

48. Draw a line ‘30 km’ long from where the ‘Bearings Cross’ each other.

49. Bearing Line 1 to > Bearing Line 3.

50. TIP > Sometimes it is easier to ‘Mark’ the two crossing points and then draw your line through them with the ‘Ruler.’ <

51. ‘Erase’ the > '2 Compass Circles.’

52. ‘‘Contacts Heading Line’ (CHL) > 151 degrees.

53. ‘Predict’ now > ‘Bearing 4.’

54. If the ‘Target is maintaining > Constant Speed.

55. ‘Measure’ the ‘Distance’ > ‘Compass’ between ‘Bearing 2’ > ‘Bearing 3.’

56. ‘Compass’ on > ‘X Mark’ > Bearing 2 Line.

57. ‘Compass Radius’ shows the ‘Distance’ between ‘Bearing 1’ > ‘Bearing 3’ remains constant if plotted correctly.

58. ‘Compass’ drag to where the ‘Bearing Line’ and > CHL Cross.

59. ‘Spacing’ showing on ‘Bearing 1’ and ‘Bearing 3’ must be the same.

60. The ‘Edge’ will show where to ‘Plot’ the ‘Predicted > Bearing 4.

61. Predicted Bearing 4’ > Draw so it matches the shape of the ‘Bearing 1 Line’ is to the ‘Compass Circle.’

62. ‘Predicted Bearing 4’ > Plotted.

63. ‘15 minutes’ have passed.

64. During that time we have:

65. Moved our ‘U-Boat

66. Dived

67. ‘Speed’ > 0

68. ‘Hydrophone’ > New Bearing 4.

69. ‘True Bearing > 350 degrees.’

70. Navigation Fix.

71. Stop the ‘Stopwatch no longer needed.

72. Total time 45 minutes.’(True Bearing 4 > 350 degrees)

73. Plot > Real ‘Bearing 4’.

74. Draw out ‘350 degrees’ from > Navigation Fix’ so it crosses the > Predicted Bearing 4 Line.

75. ‘Compass’ > make ‘Parallel Line’ > on 151 degrees ‘CHL’

76. ‘Compass from ‘CHL’ and place it ‘Parallel’ until it also ‘Crosses both the ‘True Bearing 4 Line’ and ‘Predicted Bearing 4 Line.’

77. This is the Line coming out from the U-Boat.

78. We now know where the ‘Target’ is.

79. ‘Compass’ > ‘Measure’ > Bearing 1 Line’ > ‘True Bearing 4 Line.’

80. ‘Target’ > ‘9,000 meters > 45 minutes.’

81. We can now find ‘Target Heading – Target Range – AOB – Speed.’

82. Go to the ‘Knots in Meters Per Minute Chart.’

83. ‘9000 meters’ > Targets Speed 6.5 Knots.

84. Although in this particular scenario ‘15 Minutes between bearings has been used you can use any time gap as long as they are the ‘Same between all Bearings.’

85. Personally I do not like to use less than 20 minutes as you need to be able to have the accuracy from the bearings you plot.

86. If the bearings are too close to each other then you will not be able to achieve this.

87. Always allow enough time for > Map Work.

88. The further away and ‘Slower the Target’ is you will need to allow ‘Longer Times’ between each ‘Bearings.’

89. Set up ‘Firing Position’ >90 degrees.

90. If playing with ‘Real Navigation’ > ‘Navigator’ > new position fix.

91. ‘Protractor’ on > ’90 degree Line’ to > New ‘CHL.’

92. Draw a line > U-Boat > ‘CHL’

93. This is > ’62 degrees’

94. ‘Firing Point’ now need to move > 4,200 meters.

95. ‘Surface the Boat.’

96. Order > ‘Ahead Slow.’

97. ‘Compass’ <> ‘Rudder’ > 62 degrees.

98. ‘Speed per Minutes Chart’ > 4,200 Meters.

99. Check set up on ‘Firing Line’ > 90 degrees.

100. Prepare your attack.

101. Good Hunting Captain.

Default Convoy Hunting For Ships In The Same Row By Stoianm

Last updated 31st December 2014

Convoy Hunt For Ships In The Same Row - Tutorial Video's - With Real Navigation And 100% Realism In SH5 > Step By Step Instructions.

This ‘Tutorial’ by ‘Stoianm’ shows you how to attack ‘3 Targets in a ‘Row’ simultaneously.

‘My Tutorial’ can be used in conjunction with ‘Stoianm’s 4 video’s’ that make up his ‘Tutorial’ or as a standalone replacing ‘Stoianm’s Data’ with your own.

If you are using ‘Map Contacts’ then you will need to disregard parts of this tutorial but you will still need to know how to take the different bearings.

(Leave the ‘TAI Map’ ‘Minimised instead of ‘Closing’ it.

Default Game Play Settings In Silent Hunter 5

Last updated 26th January 2016

These percentages do not apply if using The Wolves Of Steel mega mod.

Game Play Settings are selected from the Main Menu and then by selecting Options.

Game Play Option Levels:

Low > 2%
Medium > 38%
High > 77%
Realistic > 100%
Custom > % dependant on what is added or removed.

The default setting showing in Game Play Settings is always determined by the setting originally selected when a New Campaign is chosen.

Selections can be changed by either ticking, or un-ticking a box, this changes the default setting to become a Custom Game Play Setting.

Limited Batteries > Medium > High

When selected, the batteries that power your submarines electric engines are limited, this, in turn, limits the amount of time you can stay submerged before the batteries must be recharged.

Limited Compressed Air > High

When selected, your submarine uses an amount of compressed air to surface by blowing air in the ballast tanks.
If you exhaust your supply, you will have difficulties in bringing the submarine to the surface.
Compressed air is regenerated by your compressor when the submarine is running on the surface, so it is vital to keep that piece of equipment in good condition.


Limited O2 > Medium > High

When the submarine is submerged, the crew uses oxygen and generates CO2 (carbon dioxide).
Over time, the air will become un-breathable, affecting the performance of the crew and possibly even leading to their death.
When this option is selected, you must surface your submarine periodically to resupply your submarine with fresh air.

Limited Fuel > High > Realistic

When selected, your submarine has limited fuel, and therefore limited range.
You must return to base before your fuel supply is exhausted.
There are no refuelling submarines in the (stock) game.
You will get a warning during the patrol when you have used 50% of your fuel.


Realistic Repair Time > Medium > High > Realistic

When selected, damage repairs will take longer.

Manual Targeting System > High > Realistic

When selected, you must enter the appropriate information in to the TDC when firing torpedoes. You cannot simply point the TBT or periscope at a target and fire.

No Map Contact Update > Realistic

When selected, hydrophone and visual contacts will not appear on the navigation map.
Radio contacts, however will periodically appear on the map.


No Deck Gun Projectile Path > High > Realistic

The yellow line from the deck gun to the target is no longer shown.

Realistic Sensors > Medium > High > Realistic

When selected, the effectiveness of your hydrophone and radar is reduced.

Dud Torpedoes > Medium > High > Realistic

When selected, your torpedoes will periodically malfunction.
Malfunctioning torpedoes will either detonate too early, or not detonate at all.


Realistic Reload > High > Realistic

When selected, it will take a considerable amount of time to reload the torpedo tubes.

No Event Camera > Low > Medium > High > Realistic

When selected, the event camera is disabled.
You will not see your torpedo tracking to the target or when the target sinks beneath the waves.

No External View > Realistic

When selected, the external camera is disabled.

No Stabilize View > Realistic

When selected, your targeting optics (i.e the TBT and attack periscope) will be realistically affected by the submarines movement on the waves.
This will make targeting more difficult in rough seas.


No Ship Damage Meters > High > Realistic

No explanation available.
